    Summary

    Uther had been a politician and a businessman for all of Arthur’s life. He had been running campaigns against the magic community for just as long. Early in Arthurs's life, one of the many pharmaceutical companies Uther owned produced a dangerous drug called XM that could suppress magic. Not long after, the drugs were labeled as both unhealthy and unethical and were forcibly removed from the market. Uther never gave up though, and he raised his two children to understand the horrible truths of magic.
    When Morgana collapses at Uther’s kitchen table one morning, Uther rushes her to the emergency. There, she is examined by Guise, the former family doctor, and it is reviled that her sudden and life-threatening illness is a direct result of magic suppressing drugs. The only way to save her life is through the direct intervention of an extremely powerful magic user, to jump-start her magic and heal her body. Against his father’s wishes, Arthur insists on contacting the only person that might be willing and able to save his sister, Merlin Emrys.

    Summary

    Geraint is an old man - older than the town he lives in and even older than that, and despite his age, remembers every day as if it were yesterday.

    He spends his days retelling stories of the town, from before the Fall of Camelot, to snippets of life during the town's hayday.

    One night, a stranger who appears to be more than who he says he is, asks for a tale - all of them.

    Summary

    Merlin watches Arthur leave. He has to forcibly remind himself about what he can and cannot have; who and what he is. Thrice damned. Blessed to be alive, in Camelot, and at Arthur’s side. He needs nothing more.

    For now, Merlin has paperwork to do and more magical artefacts to buy back from the citizens of Camelot. He takes a couple of moments to reconstruct himself, reaching for some ambient magic and using it to stabilise his tired body and revitalise his mind.

    He can’t fall over when there is more work to do. When he opens his eyes, Merlin straightens his itchy court outfit and sets off to be the best Court Sorcerer he can be.


    The sequel to Soldier, Peasant, King where Merlin, now serving as Camelot’s Court Sorcerer, must weigh his personal wish to accept the king’s mutually-desired advances to court him against his professional duty: to help bring about and sustain Camelot’s Golden Age as prophesied and witnessed in the Crystal of Neahtid. Of course, the very same Crystal paints a future for him and Arthur as a harbinger of heartache.

    Summary

    What if Morgana's prophetic dreams had been much more useful, particularly early on? If she'd gotten enough spoilers (say, by viewing Seasons 2-5 in her dreams), could she have prevented her tragic future? Yet another redemption fic for Morgana, who deserves it.

    NOTE: This fic is Rated M. If sexual relations between consenting adults is upsetting to you, particularly when it involves women having agency over their own bodies and their sexual choices, neither this fic, nor "Le Morte d'Arthur," is for you. Slut-shaming women is not acceptable behavior; any more of that nonsense, and I'm turning off comments. Go shout at Sir Thomas Malory's grave, boys. He at least got paid for his writing.

    Summary

    Arthur hates Christmas. Maybe hate is a strong word. He very strongly disliked Christmas. It had gotten better now that his father wasn’t a grinch this time of year and with gaining a new step-mom and step-sister. This year, though, he’s dreading it. He will be the only single person in attendance at the Pendragon Christmas Vacation at Camelot Estate. So naturally, Arthur is expecting it to be a terrible time for him.

    That is until his step-sister Elena’s boyfriend Will invites his best friend along as well. Even worse, Will’s friend Merlin will be bunking in the same room as Arthur! How could this possibly end well for him?

    Summary

    Bereft of the emotions that should have come at the implications of the sentence, Uther's tone is stoic as if his own son is a common prisoner. “You are to leave Camelot by nightfall. If we find you have returned to the grounds of this kingdom we will have no choice but to carry out your original sentence in the highest order.”

    Exiled and disinherited? Brilliant.


    An AU where Uther, under the influence of Troll!Catrina and Goblin!Gaius legitimately disinherits Arthur and he must deal with the consequences thereof in an attempt to reclaim Camelot.

    Summary

    Merlin’s life is perfect. He loves his job at his Uncle and Aunt’s magical shop, Tonic & Tomes. He’s made great friends through the Magical Meet Up, a support group he’s helping to run. He’s living rent-free in a fabulous Chelsea townhouse in the heart of London, just twenty minutes walk from his work. His housemate, Arthur, is funny and generous - admittedly, he’s also a bit of a prat, but that’s kind of endearing - and Merlin has fallen utterly in love with him. So, yes, life is perfect, or at least it would be if Arthur wasn’t in love with someone else.

    A story of magic and misunderstandings, because obviously, actually talking about things is cheating …

    Summary

    According to canon, Merlin is basically a demigod who has access to his powers since birth. He's also smart, resourceful, brave and determined. His control over time and his telekinesis should also trivialize just about every threat possible. Yet for all that, he has zero development until he comes to Camelot desperate for whatever life would give him.

    In this fic, all of that changes. Merlin fully embraced his power, which impacted both his life and his surroundings.

    So when he comes to Camelot Merlin still needs to figure out himself and his purpose like in canon, but he is in a totally different place both magically and mentally. Will that change everything? Or nothing?

    Summary

    Arthur sees an ad - "A remote island in Ireland is looking for 2 friends to live there for free and run its coffee shop" - and decides he and Merlin could use an adventure. They are hired and later realize everyone on the island thought they were a couple, but they're "just friends".

    Affectionately called "Scenes from an Irish Island", this is a series of snapshots mostly set during the six months Arthur and Merlin spend on the island together and maybe, spoiler, how they become more than friends.

    Summary

    In a modern magical world, Merlin is a Druid living in a commune near Camelot. He works as a photographer in the city and does his best to fit in whilst keeping his magic a secret from all non-magic people except his best friend Will. Merlin would like nothing more than to live an ordinary life, but the Druids have one cardinal rule: Druids marry Druids. Merlin has been fighting to get out of an engagement to Mordred for several years to no avail, but when Arthur Pendragon enters the picture, sparks fly...only for Merlin to learn Arthur and his family hate Druids. With Arthur oblivious to Merlin's heritage, Merlin will have to choose between telling the truth or feigning ignorance, and possibly losing everything he's ever known along the way.
